85s in a squeezed pot 1/2
1/2 home game 9 handed.
Hero on his 3rd buy-in with $500 effective. Is new to the game. Found it on an internet social forum. Lost 2 buy-ins within the first hour of sitting down. KK vs OESFD, and when I raised preflop in MP with 88 and lost on 789 flop to JT. Tighten up to grind back some of the losses. On the way won a medium sized pot vs the villian. I raised preflop with KThh, he raised my cbet on Kxxss when he had position, turn checked through when the front-door flush completed, I bet 2/3 pot on T river and he called.
Villian is the host of the game. Clearly the best player at the table. The other players are donks, but this guy is pretty solid player very aggro. He hosts these games just for his own benefit. Heard him talking about playing at higher stake games. Clearly well rolled for this game. Opens with SC in MP, see a ton of flops with trash. Not afraid to apply pressure when he smells weakness.
Just a moment ago he limped with a few others, I iso'ed on the BTN. He donks a 268ss, I called, he check/call A and check/fold J with no flush on board.
Hero delt 8d5d on BTN.
Villian opens $8 in MP, player call $8, Hero bets $40, Only vilian call.
Flop ($91): 8h Td 4d
Villian bets $60, hero ?
My read is he can easily do this because he puts me on a wiffed AK. He also likes to use the "protection bet"
Preflop I messed up. I though he would start to respect me...obviously not. Seems he likes to call 3bets oop to crack aces.
